- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2009-057 ( http://drupal.org/node/579144 )

- Project: Date (third-party module) * Version: 5.x, 6.x
* Date: 2009-September-16 * Security risk: Moderately critical * Exploitable from: Remote * Vulnerability:
Cross Site Scripting -------- DESCRIPTION
--- The Date module provides a date CCK field that can be added to any content type. The Date module does not properly escape user data correctly in some cases when setting the page title. A malicious user with permission to post date content could attempt a cross site scripting [1] (XSS) attack when creating or editing content, leading to the user gaining full administrative access. -------- VERSIONS AFFECTED
--------------------------------------------------- * Date for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-2.4 * Date for Drupal 6.x prior to 5.x-2.8 Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Date module, there is nothing you need to do. -------- SOLUTION
------ Upgrade to the latest version: * If you use Date for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Date 6.x-2.4 [2]

- If you use Date for Drupal 5.x upgrade to Date 5.x-2.8 [3] See also the Date project page [4]. -------- REPORTED BY
- The Acquia, Inc. support team -------- FIXED BY
